I find that I have not been keeping track of the blogging world as well as I possibly should be. It seems like Facebook and some of the other social media sites get a little bit more attention, since they are geared toward quick checkins, etc.
The photography community is in a little bit of a buzz at the moment. A photo just sold for 6.5 million dollars to a private collector. Of course, there are comments flying every which way. For me, it is a little bit hard to comprehend. Then again, I am not necessarily anywhere close to being in the same category of photographer.
It seems somewhat paradoxical, to me, that I am celebrating a small feat of accomplishment with my Hedgehog Cactus Flower photo being printed in a calendar at the same time the news broke about the 6.5 million dollar sale. I am thankful that the photo was even considered to be published. All the proceeds from the calendar fund the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department in Arizona.
What has been happening in my own realm of photography has been picking up, partially due to the photo being printed in the calendar. I started making a list of things to do so that I can start checking them off as I accomplish them. There is a lot more behind the scenes to keep track of. It is also a good thing I have a calendar to help keep track of things! There are still calendars for sale ($7.50 each) at the Maricopa County Parks [listed on the back of the calendar], and can make a great last minute Christmas gift!
